With its $7 billion take-out of Dade Behring Holdings Inc., the German industrial giant ups the acquisition ante for in vitro diagnostic companies. Rival GE may have to play catch-up if it wants to maintain its leadership position in medical testing.

Siemens acquires Bayer Diagnostics, Creates Integrated Diagnostics Powerhouse

Following upon its announcement in May that it would pay $1.86 billion for Diagnostics Products, to bring an immunodiagnostics business in-house, Siemens announced in June that it will acquire Bayer Diagnostics for approximately €4.2 billion or $5.26 billion. Siemens thus catapults itself to the number two spot in the immunodiagnostics segment of IVD, after Roche, and by its calculations, now plays a close third to Abbott Laboratories in the overall in vitro diagnostics market.

But getting there-and getting noticed-isn't easy. And since most executives agree that going to the US half-heartedly isn't worthwhile, Europe's biotechs need to think hard about when and whether they're ready to go. For a minority, setting up in the US may not be the right solution-for now.
